Following the critical and radio success of ‘Lost in Translation’, folk-pop songwriter and artist, Luke Clerkin, is set to release a follow up remix. Berlin based producer jaako’s take on the song turns the cinematic piano ballad into a chill disco-influenced summer bop. The remix will be released on July 30th. This will be Clerkin’s first venture into the dance music genre.
Talking about the release, Luke said, “When I first showed the original song to my friends, one of their responses was that we should do a remix. So, I suggested it to jaako, and within a few days, he sent me a demo, and I loved it! I’ve been wanting to delve into dance music for a while now and with this remix I get the chance to show people how well my voice works in the genre. I also get to further introduce my work with jaako, as this is still only a small taste of what we’ve done together.”
“I feel we’re releasing this song at the right time as well. With the country and the world beginning to open up, and the weather improving, the song reflects that hopefulness. I’ve also never really had a summer song before, so, this will be a first for me, and I’m very excited to hear what people think.”
